Due to growing environmental and economical concern, I chose to conduct a study to determine the soundest choice for Americans to make when it came to their waste. My research shows that landfills could cause disease, pollution and global warming, whereas recycling helps us to reduce what is harvested by reusing what we already have. Since recycling had the better outcome, I decided to establish our towns recycling program ,by setting up a recycling drop-off center located downtown. There are two, 14x7 ft trailers that collect plastic and aluminum. They sit in the parking lot of our police station for the maximum protection and convenience of our citizens. In order to establish the program, I had to meet with recycling officials and present the informatin I obtained to our town board in a series of workshops. The agreement between myself and the owner of Lumberton Recycling Company is that he would provide the trailers in return for what we would collect. He will pay us $925 for the trailer of aluminum, but none for plastic. Since the trailers are not yet full, we are yet to generate income. The money that remins after the general expenses will go towards a scholarship for a St.Pauls High School Senior. My town will soon save money and the enviornment by dumping less into our county landfill.
